Fortunately for me, I downloaded and saved the entire site for GD a while ago, and by doing so can use the old way still............I've been downloading thru the new site pages for the last week, stumbling, scratching my head and being just plain frustrated.

Then I realized I had saved the old pages from each year, and now, at least for now, I'm downloading thru the old pages, AND-------BOY is that easier, more imformative and about ten times moore organized!

This is incredible that people are using cached pages of the site because the new version is virtually un-navigable. I can't find anything anymore - it seems like we just lost a huge resource - or I did, because I didn't save the old pages.

I know one thing, I am not going to be uploading any more shows in protest of my uploader credits being removed on all the shows I DID upload. That is unfortunate, because I used to LOVE this site. I see it now as a lot of material that is buried so deep no-one will be able to access it anymore - which kind of goes against the purpose of the archive itself. Bummer. :-(( but there are always the torrent sites I guess...

Currently this seems to be the LMA's most downloaded new show:

"The search engine encountered the following error: Search engine returned invalid information or was unresponsive. We are working to resolve this issue. Thanks for your patience."

Well, I used to be able to listen to music. What a shame. I pray( yeah.. hippies pray) this is a temporary glitch.

Let's make it better ...again. What's it gonna take?..donations, volunteers, visionary "free radicals" that are willing to smash the police/dink state(a little hyperbolie is admissable for humorous effect). I'm saddened again. Man! what a shame.

I think sometimes that message is due to high load on the site at popular times of day.

I've been doing that............."IT'S A REAL PAIN IN THE ###" .........the new way, I mean!

The old format was, well, I said 10 times better, it may be 20 times better...........so I just access it with the old way, thru the pages I saved months ago.

Maybe not as up to date with the views etc, but all the same stuff!

THE NEW WAY STINKS!

But I'll send in my donation anyway..........maybe!
